What is it about?

Mining engineering is the science of extraction and processing of essential natural minerals from the environment. This discipline involvesthe theory, the practice, the technology, the science, and the application of extracting and processing minerals from a naturally occurring setting. Mining engineering also includes processing minerals for additional value. So, a mining engineer learns the technology and theory of mineral extraction without causing any harm to the surroundings where the extraction activity takes place. The mining engineers are not only supposed to extract and process minerals,nonetheless it is required of them to do the same in a responsible manner without affecting the environment due to the activity. Thus the mining engineering contributes a lot in tapping a country’s natural resources and in the process helps in the growth of the economy.
